Why Wes Anderson is wonderful and I am not.

Wes Anderson has made some art.

This is a fact.

Moonrise Kingdom is one of my favorite movies. Fantastic Mr. Fox is honestly genius. The Grand Budapest Hotel can’t fail to make me happy.

The issue is I do NOT like Owen Wilson, and he is in a lot of Wes Anderson films. So is Jason Schwartzman, but I love Jason Schwarztman.

yay for jason//the best

I love his use of wide shots and then close ups. I love the symmetrical framing.I love the quick cuts. I love the characters in his movies. I love that I feel real emotions when I’m watching his movies.

He is the only director whose style I can really recognize, and I like that.

He is wonderful.

I say that I am not because I don’t think I can do what he does.

I can’t move people to emotion, unless that emotion is laughter or disdain I think.

I don’t really know how to create art, or what the best aspects of art are. I don’t understand how people are so creative to create wonderful and unique things like movies or books or paintings.

I will never be a complex Wes Anderson lead or even a minor clever or witty background character. I will just be a bitch that people don’t like because they don’t care to see my perspective or because, perhaps, I AM a bitch- which I guess would be okay
